The tournament will benefit the Huntington's Disease Society and the Contra Costa Board of Realtors Scholarship Foundation. Previous Mason-McDuffie golf events have raised more than $40,000 for charities.
"This tournament allows our company to give back to charitable organizations that make a big difference to the people they serve," said Kaveh Sartipi, tournament chairman. "It aligns with our core values,"
Sartipi, manager of the Danville branch and company vice-president, is chairing the event for the third year.
Huntington's disease is a genetic disease passed from a parent to a child in which certain nerves in the brain degenerate. There is no known cure, but the society is funding research seeking both better treatments and an eventual cure.
Mason-McDuffie chose the Huntington's society after some of their associates told them about a friend who had the disease.
The Contra Costa Realtor's scholarship is designed for a college student who has been enrolled in a major in college that could lead to a career in real estate. A grade-point-average of 3.0 is required to apply for the scholarship.
The tournament will be a scramble format with a noon shotgun start. The country club features a traditional layout with small greens and huge old oak trees.
Entry fees include golf with a cart, lunch, tee prizes and dinner. Participants who enter before May 15 qualify for the early bird special of $195. Entries after that date are $225.
